Font and Format related items that are to be used by everyone one the
system should be installed in the proper sub-directory of /usr/local/
teTeX/share/texmf.local/. Packages for personal use can still be
installed in your personal tree, ~/Library/texmf/.
If you install anything in the texmf.local tree you must run
so the system will know about the changes; this is NOT necessary for
items in you personal tree. If it is fonts related you might have to
add a .map via
sudo -H updmap-sys ...
